Stay Tuned...

I don't normally find myself watching television, but I was, and a commercial caught my eye about a coming show that might be a good idea-- or a very, very horrible one. The Philanthropist, premiering on June 24th at 10/9C, is an "eight-part drama for NBC that follows the heroic adventures of Teddy Rist, billionaire playboy-turned-vigilante philanthropist". If this show is good perhaps it will move philanthropic themed stories and actions into the popular-culture infused mainstream, via prime-time television. If the show is horrendous, it could have an equally far-reaching negative effect, confusing philanthropic acts with television drama plot lines. Please all, watch and take notes. The ReGenerates want to know how this show will go over with the nonprofit sector.
